Coronation 663 update

Coronation tram 663 remains in the care of Riley & Son Electromec Ltd in Heywood for a contract bogie overhaul and other associated works. A recent milestone in the project has seen the monobloc wheels arrive from Naledi Ringrollers in South Africa. A full set of new rubber suspension blocks and “sandwiches” are also currently on order, and Riley’s are now reassembling the Maley & Taunton HS44 type bogies following the delivery of new springs and their extensive work on the bogies frames.
